From the vision and venture of some dynamic and optimistic visionaries and enthusiasts, since 1998, Vidyasagar College of Optometry & Vision Science of has developed itself into a confident optometry institution - making it one of the torch bearers of optometry of its kind in India, dedicated to promoting the science of optometry. The college is a forum of educationists, scientists, professionals and benefactors, in Eastern India, working for the development of optometric education and research for the advancement of professional practice in vision care. VCOVS was founded in the year 1998 with the aim of providing higher education in optometry, the first of its kind in Eastern India.
VCOVS is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, registered under the Society Registration Act (1961), Govt of West Bengal. It is a temple of Education that worships Knowledge as God & it is solely dedicated to delivering quality Optometry education with right professional attitude to reach the goal of Prevention of Blindness through Vision 2020: the right to sight. The institute has set a benchmark in creating successful optometry graduates every year with full placement in India & abroad since 2001 under West Bengal University of Technology approved by Government of West Bengal.
The campus is located at the heart of the city (Eastern metropolitan bypass) within easy road communication & in the vicinity of peaceful environment free from the noise of the city. It is a multi-storeyed campus with excellent infrastructure & its own clinic running six days a week. The institute has a high Teacher to student ratio & promotes learning with equality and passion.
Since it's inception in 1998, VCOVS was started as a dream project, when a group of like minded eye care professionals decided to create an institution to ensure a deep and lasting impact on the ongoing war against blindness in India. The role of optometrists is profound in a world where a simple eye examination and the need for a pair of spectacles can change a person's life, and vision-threatening conditions like diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma go undiagnosed; there is a desperate need for a proper comprehensive eye care examination and VCOVS has been dedicated to creating well trained and highly competent optometrists in the country to accomplish eradicating avoidable blindness.
With dedicated professionals, academicians and researchers by our side, we have really made a difference to our efforts by uplifting the standard of optometry nationwide through education and research. We have successfully established a reputation for being in the forefront of optometry education in Eastern India and it has created an avenue for potential students willing to study optometry.
Our four-year Bachelor in Optometry (B.Optom) degree is a competitive and intensive full-time programme, approved by UGC which has been designed to give students the academic and clinical knowledge with the latest infrastructure and best faculties available and they are rigorously trained to maintain the standard and high demands for the society. And our efforts are reflected in the large percentage of students who are pursuing higher education in universities in India and abroad. We are different from other institutes because we are purely a devoted optometry institute and are led by a team of experienced optometrists and vision scientists. I would sincerely like to thank our wellwishers who have supported us creating an institute where motivated students and dedicated faculties create a wonderful optometric atmosphere.
